Noticeboard

The persisting crisis in the NHS has had a huge impact on General Practice. With an ageing population and the complex medical needs of patients rising we have seen a significant increase in the demands on GP surgeries. We have also seen a large number of GP’s retiring from the profession and a huge decrease in the number of GP’s willing to take on Partnership positions in practice.


 


We have advertised for new partners since Dr Peter retired in 2016 without success. Therefore this situation has unfortunately led to Dr Michael and Dr Nuala making the decision to transfer the responsibility of managing the practice to the Health Board in an attempt to try and find a solution. In practical terms this means that in 6 months time the running of the practice will be


taken over by the Health Board.


 


Currently we are confident that a solution can be found and that the impact on patients and staff will be minimal.
